“To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven...”
-Ecclesiastes 3:1

A Time to be Born…

Linda Jean (Turner) McKether entered this life on July 2, 1957 to Clifford Turner and Edna Parker in Saginaw, MI. She moved to Gadsden, Alabama at an early age where she was raised by her aunt, Bessie Myrick.

A Time to Learn and Grow…

Linda was a 1975 graduate of Gadsden High School. She went on to work in various fields including nursing and retail where she felt she could help and encourage people.
She accepted the Lord as her Savior at an early age. Linda strived to live a life where people could see and feel the love of God in her. She has served as an usher and loved to sing God’s praises. Later in life, Linda became a member of Mt. Nebo Baptist Church where she loved her church family.

A Time to Love…

A Time to Enlarge…

To their union were born six children: five daughters affectionately known as “Linda’s Girls” and one son who preceded her in death. At the time of her passing Linda was the grandmother to five grandchildren: two grandsons, three granddaughters and one great-granddaughter. She loved her family and dedicated her life to making sure everyone was taken care of. One of Linda’s greatest joys was being surrounded by her family.

A Time to Live Life…

Linda was truly a beautiful person inside and out. She loved to live life to the fullest and loved to encourage other people. She had a distinct laugh that will truly be missed. Linda loved to laugh and have fun. She always greeted you with a smile, a shoulder to lean on or a listening ear if that’s what you needed. She had a passion for singing and loving people. Linda loved caring for her plants and often referred to them as her “kids”.
